The Roman vicus found at Güglingen, in Baden-Württemberg, is located 12 km from the Neckar, a tributary of the Rhine, in the interior area of the limes, in Germania Superior. Founded at the beginning of the 2nd century C.E. beside the Zaber River, this small town was a place of trade and commerce, surrounded by many agricultural villas. A Mithraeum came to light there in 1999 during rescue excavations and another in 2002 during excavations undertaken at the ancient site. These two sanctuaries were active for the duration of the vicus's occupation, up to the middle of the 3rd century C.E.
